Frequently Asked Questions
1. How much is it going to cost for lawn greetings ?
Our prices start from only $165.00 and may increase depending on the distance we are required to travel.
2. Whatís the difference between your company
and other companies?
Quality quality quality! Weíve spent big money hiring professional
artists and sign shops to create impressive displays that wonít
leave you disappointed. Our fun 8-foot high centerpiece characters
are unique to our company and appear custom painted just for your
special occasion. We conduct regular maintenance on these characters
to keep them looking like the day they left the shop. We also replace
our smaller plastic characters, like flamingos, well before their
colors are faded out from sun exposure. Quality, selection and an
iron-clad guarantee demonstrate that weíre a company that wants
3. How far in advance do I need to make a booking?
The more notice the better. We have a limited number of displays
with weekends usually being the busiest. The later you leave it
the less chance you have of getting your preferred choice in a display.
That being said, we often are able to help people out who call the
day before a display is needed. (And yes, the men take the prize
for calling me at the last minute in a panic!)
4. What information will I need to have ready,
in order to make a booking?
In addition to the recipients name and address there are two additional
pieces of information that are important to insuring the delivery
goes smoothly. A recipient's accurate expected bedtime and waketime
for the night of the delivery should be obtained from someone in
their household. Having someone else in their household know that
we will be coming can also be a big help in insuring other household
members or family pets donít spoil the surprise. They can also help
you work out detailed instructions for making it easier for us to
locate the house in the dark. Information such as the number of
houses in from the nearest cross street, type of vehicles parked
in driveway, and any distinguishing characteristics about the property
are very important.
5. What areas do you service?
Basically if youíll pay me enough, Iíll get these animals delivered
anywhere! Realistically though, we cover from Langley to Horse Shoe
Bay for the majority of our business but have gone as far as Squamish
and Mission on occasion.
6. What time do you deliver the display?
When most people are in dreamland! Generally we deliver the displays
sometime between the persons expected bedtime and waketime which
can vary from person to person. We can also accommodate a delivery
time during the middle of the day if you are planning a surprise
party for someone.
7. What time do you pick up the display?
After I get a call from the head flamingo saying theyíre pooped!
Actually, we normally leave displays until around 8:30 p.m. giving
you time to enjoy your display with friends and family dropping
by after dinner. It may be possible to arrange a later or earlier
pick-up time when placing your booking.
8. Who is responsible if something gets stolen
from the lawn?
Poachers will be prosecuted! Theft is a lot less than you might
expect. Generally our displays are done on residential lawns and
are strategically positioned to minimize the possibility of theft.
As long as the display has not been moved from where it was originally
set up, we will assume responsibility for any stolen items.
9. Can displays be set-up indoors?
Yes. However, in order to accommodate our 8-ft. high central characters
it is best suited to a lobby or foyer area with at least a 9-ft.
10. Can they be set up outside a personís place
Heck yes! Itís great fun for the whole company. The only stipulation
is that the employer grants permission and that there is a suitable
area removed from walk-by traffic for setting up the display.
11. Will the display possibly do damage to
No. The only items that actually get stuck into the lawn are the
narrow steel rod legs of the flamingos and buzzards. They actually
aerate the lawn at no extra cost! All the other characters including
the 8-ft. high central character are free standing and simply rest
on top of the lawn without causing any damage.
12. Do you operate year round?
Yes. The relatively mild and green winters of the West Coast make
it an ideal location for year round enjoyment of these fun lawn
displays. With the exception of a rare winter snowstorm, weíre always
on the job or should I say on the lawn.
